Crown

 

I wonder what the world would be like,

If all the children had enough to eat?

I wonder what the world would be like,

If all the old didnÕt feel alone?

 

I wonder what the world would be like

If we couldnÕt see the color of our skin?

I wonder what the world would be like

If we could all see that we are kin?

 

Are we falling down?

Are we falling down?

Can we spread our love around?

And give the Lord back his crown.

 

I wonder what the world would be like,

If all godÕs children just perhaps,

Would winder what the world would be like

If we took the lines of the maps.

 

Are we falling down?

Are we falling down?

Can we spread our love around?

And give the Lord back his crown.

 

Well, I wonder what the world would be like,

If Jesus Christ would walk again?

And I wonder what it is that heÕd say

If he took one good look at today?

 

Are we falling down?

Are we falling down?

Can we spread our love around?

And give the Lord back his crown.

Give the lord back his crown.

Give the lord back his crown.

 

 

 

 

 

Small Talk

 

She was born and raised in city light,

And she had a quiet country life.

But when they were down and alone,

They would call each other on the phone.

It is only small talk in the end.

Small talk, between friends.

 

You can blow up your fantasy,

And march it down on old Broadway.

Because we all have the same super heroes

On a childÕs cartoon, and those late night shows.

ItÕs only small talk in the end.

Small talk of dream saving men.

 

And all the great cities that we have built,

Blowing smoke without a guilt.

The power that yields to light the night,

Taken from found historyÕs might.

Well it is only small talk in the end.

Small talk that may not meant to offend.

 

The birds way out in the country

Are now forced to breathe city air.

Yrs, our industries are thriving

As the world around us is crying.

It is only small talk in the end

Small talk that may not make amends.

 

And all our armies prepare to fight

Lord know that someday they just might

Well, ashes to ashes, and dust to dust

It is a shame that we have all lost our trust.

And it is only small talk in the end

Small talk between friends

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When Don't go As Planned

 

You grew up in the mighty upper class

Drank some beer, but showed some class.

Everybody knows that your father was brass

But he never understood, nor his lass.

 

That he is living on top of the world

Doing the best that he can

To save the face of his father, man

When things donÕt go as planned.

 

Our lady liberty stands in the harbor,

Praise the city and the white collar.

Even George Washington frowns on the dollar,

But if you donÕt like it, you are allowed to holler.

 

Cause were sitting on top of the world

Doing the best that we can.

To save the face of old Uncle Sam.

When things donÕt go as planned.

 

We all see that you have belief,

Come on children now turn that leaf.

Well you can cry, but show no grief.

Just talk to your God and get some relief.

 

We think that he is on top of the world,

Doing the best that he can

To save the face of his child man

When things donÕt go as planned.

But, God only knows what the Devil has done,

All of his children are on the run.

ThereÕs dirt in the water and an ozone sun.

The babyÕs are crying there is no time for fun.

 

And we are sighing all over the world

Doing the best that we can

To save the face of our homelands

When things donÕt go as planned.

 

If we get together, we will find a way

To build a faith that gives all a say.

The beast is among us and ChristÕs away

But, some one is coming to save the day.

 

And were praying all over the world,

Doing the best that we can

To save the face of just one man

When things donÕt go as planned.

 

 

 

 

 Roller Coaster Ride

 

 

A sunny afternoon and a day in the park

Me and my family together on a lark

I said: ÒDaddy can I ride on the big rides now?Ó

He said: ÒNo, my son, you are just too young.Ó

 

ÒBut I want to be, just like my friends

And they have been riding since they were ten.:

He said: ÒWell, Ok son, maybe itÕs timeÓ

And we got on board and we started the ride.

 

Roller coaster ride

He said it was just like life

First you grow up nice and slow

Then you fall back down again

Yes, you fall back down again my son

Oh, you fall back down again.

 

We got in the car and we strapped ourselves in.

I said, ÒDaddy, IÕm afraidÓ and he said with a grin,

ÒItÕs ok son, just you hold on tight,

Everything is going to be all right.Ó

 

We started to climb up this big hill.

He Said: ÒThis is just the first part, isnÕt it tension filled

Around a ben we started to fall.

I let out a scream all my hopes, all my dreams.

 

Chorus

 

Little did I know that I would write this song.

Little did I know that I would be this strong.

Little did I know on that sunny afternoon

Little did I know that I would leave him so soon.

 

 

 

Wild Child

 

Well she was

A wild child

Yeah, she was

Of wild kind.

But when she tried to put her feet upon the ground,

She toppled down.

 

She became

As straight shooter

Yeah, she was

Slick and clean

But, when she cried out to her God at night,

She cried out loud.

 

Behold, she is a woman,

She is time to be a wife

And all her friends, they will know

Free bird had flown.

 

Well, the pain

 IsnÕt forever girl

It is just a piece of time.

When it all comes together, you will find

Peace of mind.

 

IÕve been there too girl

Lord knows IÕm just like you

ThereÕs no need to confide

We all have our own scars to hide

 

IÕm singing from my heart girl

Crutches in hand

Some days I just have to say

You steer, IÕll tow the line.

 

Baby you know

Yeah I know

That IÕm reaching out to you

For your love.

 

Well, she was a wild child.

 

 

 

 

Princess

 

This is the story of one loving man.

WhoÕd met a princess that held on to his hand.

She made him feel like he was the only one.

But when fair weather past the romance was done.

 

He didnÕt have much, only a rose.

He gave it to her and she told him to go.

He didnÕt see she was just looking for fun,

And she knew sheÕd leave him with the warm sun.

 

For she had been gifted

With silver and gold.

CouldnÕt see the virtue

Of his lone rose.

 

For she had been blinded

By al of the best

So, a poor man

Could never pass the test

Pass the test.

 

Now, he sits in his room, and asks himself why

His good friends tell him, now donÕt you even try.

She was just a child man, and it was only a lie.

Well we will excuse you while you have a good cry.

 

Now he walks along with no gift at all

And dreams of those times that are long past gone.

She was just another one of his passing flings,

But she had him thinking about giving a diamond ring.

 

Chorus

 

ItÕs every manÕs dream to love a princess

But when you have been burned, you dream this less.

Just hold your head high, and donÕt you forget

SheÕll come along someday, on that you can bet.

 

 

Burning Bridges

 

 

Every day, we walk alone

Letting our dreams and memories roam

Oh let the bad ones fall away,

You have too much life to live today.

 

Everyday, you have tried

Laughed and cried, or just sighed

Maybe some day you will find

That you are just burning bridges in your mind.

 

Burn oh burn

Some day you will learn

Turning oh turning

The world just keeps moving on

Burning those bridges all along.

 

It is all right to cry when you are down

A sad dayÕs pain does come around

Lost friends, lovers, maybe your home town

DonÕt let it keep you from losing ground.

 

Burn oh burn

Some day you will learn

Turning oh turning

The world just keeps moving on

Burning those bridges all along.

 

Burning down

Turning Ôround

The world just keeps moving on

Yes, the world just keeps moving on.

 

 

 

 

The Jello Brand

 

 

IÕve got my pudding

Sitting by my plate.

Gee, it looks so good.

I canÕt wait.

To stick in my spoon,

Put it in my mouth

Swirl it around

Let it slide on down

 

I love my pudding, Jello brand.

I love my pudding, Jello brand

I love my pudding, Jello brand

I love my pudding, Jello brand

 

They got chocolate and vanilla

Lemon and Lime

All different colors and all different kinds,

And IÕve got a healthy body,

Got a healthy mind,

And I eat pudding

 After every meal I dine.

 

I love my pudding, Jello brand

I love my pudding, Jello brand

I love my pudding, Jello brand

I love my pudding, Jello brand

 

 

 

 

Recess

I went down to my old elementary school

To watch the children playing outside at noon

I saw the games were all still the same

As when I was out there with my own growing pains

 

Swing sets, slides, and old seesaw rides

A little manÕs pride lost when they were picking sides

Hopscotch ladies and kickball gentlemen

It never really mattered much whoÕd loose or would win.

 

Recess oh, I remember you

Playing games, learning that golden rule.

Recess, recess back at school

Dusty fun under that warm midday sun

Recess oh, I remember when

I wish that I could be back there

Playing by those simple rules once again

 

Down on the mountain where the bully rules as king

And all the pretty ladies jump rope and sing

Red rover come over, theyÕd laugh having fun

Then the whistle blew and all the children would run inside.

 

Well, way back then, we didnÕt know sin.

And, way back then we were all kin.

Way back then, we would play and play.

Way back then, we would love everyday.

 

Recess oh, I remember you

Playing games, learning that golden rule.

Recess, recess back at school

Dusty fun under that warm midday sun

Recess oh, I remember when

I wish that I could be back there

Playing by those simple rules once again

 

 

 

 

Weekend with You

 

 

Talking over memories, as we walked through the park.

A shiver ran down my spine, a warmth, a spark.

DidnÕt know quite what to say, was so confused on that day.

A pain deep down inside up and ran away.

 

IÕd about given up hope to find a woman who could cope

With all my anger and my fears and my crazy tears.

ButÕ I took a look into your eyes, something is there

I just canÕt deny it. Can it be, oh could it be, you and I.

 

Just to spend the weekend with you

To warm my heart and settle my nerves like you do.

CanÕt you see, It gets me through

Lately, I need you.

Lady, I need you.

 

It was a little easier, not too long ago.

We could both safely say, weÕre friends, just friends

And I know just what youÕll say when you here this song that I play,

You canÕt give love out now. No, not today.

 

Chorus

 

And when you say that it is not right, I wonÕt even try to fight.

IÕll just sit back and hope, Someday you might.

 

Chorus

 

I need you.

I want you.

Just to spend the weekend

Just to spend the weekend

Just to spend the weekend here with you.

     

 

Eileen

 

 

Lady, so close to my heart,

Walking in my mind,

Running through my sleep,

Loving me through the day.

 

Healing my broken heart,

Taking away my pain,

Leaving all the scars behind,

Paving my new way.

 

Oh, oh. Oh, oh

Eileen, Eileen

The mother of my child

The mother of my child

 

Holding of my hand,

Feeling you arm in arm,

Just spending time for time,

Seeing all the little signs

 

Oh, oh. Oh, oh

Eileen, Eileen

The mother of my child

The mother of my child

 

Playing all my cards,

Going out on a limb,

Being something more,

Then I have ever been.

 

Oh, oh. Oh, oh

Eileen, Eileen

The mother of my child

The mother of my child

 

   

 

 

Show Me 

 

Sometimes I will look for you

Someday I just might find you

Then somehow I will follow you

But, today IÕm just a little lost without you

Our Lord

My Messiah

The God of all

Show me where to go

 And I will search for you

Yes, I will search for you

 

Many times, I have been saved

But I have fallen time and again

I guess that I just could not understand

 Nor could I listen to what was said

Our Lord

My Messiah

The God of all

Show me what you care

 And I will try again for you 

Yes, I will try again for you

 

Come to me now my lord

Cause I donÕt want to live this way no more

And I am sorry; IÕm calling you again

My heart is tired and my search grows cold.

Our Lord

My Messiah

The God of all

Show me how to do

 And I will change for you

Yes, I will change for you

 

Oh, I can hear you now

You are here and I am so ashamed

Shall I kneel, Shall I bow

You forgive me and IÕm not to blame

Our Lord

My Messiah

The God of all

Show me who you are

 And I will follow you.

 Yes, I will follow you

 

Our Lord

Show me where to go

Show me what you care

Show me how to do

Show me who you are

 

My Messiah

And I will search for you

And I will try again for you

And I will change for you

And I will follow you.

 

 

I CanÕt See the Shore

My Soul shows no fear
IÕll make it back somehow
Just need a little re-assurance
That you will be there

Sailing through rough water
Wind blows, making it harder
Carries me out a little farther
Than I wish to go

I just have one question
Hear my true confession
Can I have a little more time?
To make it home

I canÕt see the Shore
Drifted out to far
Praying to the lord
Save me
Save me
Save me

Instrumental

I can pledge my faith
To your holy grace
But I still need to find
Strength to fight this tide

With white flag unveiled
To my god I hale
All I have to give
I surrender me

I canÕt see the shore
Drifted out too far
Praying to the lord
Save me
Save me
Save me

 

 

 

Genesis Dawn

Please pardon my yesterday
When I fell from my grace
I canÕt sleep tonight
My sight is fading
Love and faith are dying out

 

Still dark this morning
The stars are still bright
A bird cries in the darkness
The birth of day is coming
our sun will be shining soon

 

Lord awaken me
Give me hope this genesis dawn
Open up my eyes to you
And stay new light of day

Stay
Lighted up the load
Bring me to my feet
Help me see the light
Give me what I need to live

Chorus

Stay
Feed my hungry soul
Warm my tired heart
Lead me on my way
This is what I need to pray

Chorus
